When we studied the U.S. Constitution, we learned that the Federal Government has only limited enumerated powers. For example, the Federal Government can regulate interstate commerce. The Federal Government is further limited through the Bill of Rights. These rights include freedom of speech, right of free assembly, freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, right to a jury trial, right to an attorney and other express protections.
The NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) signed into law early in 2012 appears to authorize the military to detain U.S. citizens indefinitely without trial, without charges, without an attorney and without access to court review. It permits summary searches and seizures. It might even permit citizens to be assassinated. Supposedly, it recognizes that the United States is now a battlefield.
Pretend someone near and dear to you has attended a political rally and has been indefinitely detained by the Federal government.
Consider whether the NDAA and the U.S. Constitution/Bill of Rights are in conflict, and which should control.
You must consider both sides of the issue fairly.
